Set up port triggers

Some applications require multiple connections such as internet gaming, video conferencing and voice over IP telephones. These don't always work when Network Address Translation (NAT) is enabled. Setting up Port Triggering on your Bright Box router can help. To do this:

  1. From a computer connected to your Bright Box, go to 192.168.1.1 (opens in a new tab or window)



  2. The router's LOGIN SCREEN will open



  3. Enter the username and password for the admin pages
    - The username is admin (all lower case)
    - The password can be found on a sticker on your router



  4. Click LOGIN



  5. The STATUS page will open



  6. Select ADVANCED



  7. You'll be prompted to proceed with caution - select ACCEPT



  8. From the left hand menu, select NAT and then Port Triggers

 

Port Triggers - popular applications

You can pick from a few applications using the popular applications list. To do this:

  1. Scroll to the bottom of the page - you'll find the Popular applications menu



  2. Select your application from the menu, e.g. MSN GAMING ZONE
  3. Select the field that you want to paste the ports to, e.g. 1
  4. Click COPY TO



  5. Click SAVE SETTINGS



  6. Your Port Trigger will be saved
